Several boxes have arrived on my doorstep in the past few weeks. The latest one contained fabrics needed for my upcoming class.
Do you remember this?
This is the Old Elegance quilt that I'm taking a class to do in a couple weeks. I liked the blue, but I also was leaning towards using red, as it is my favorite color. I was hoping for red, but I needed something magnificent for the border with both colors in it, so I was leaving the final decision until I saw what was available.
I found this:
It is a Judie Rothermil, and a wide backing fabric, so I will be able to cut long borders without piecing them! Best of all, though, it is the perfect mix of brown and RED!
I think it reminds me of one of my favorite treats--a chocolate-covered cherry.
Cherry colored fabrics. These remind me of all the colors you see in the bin of bing cherries at the produce stand. I usually try to get the darker red ones. But the lightest red reminds me of the maraschino cherries that I use when making homemade chocolate-covered cherries.
The browns are the chocoate, of course. From milk to dark. Some have bits of red already sprinkled in.
Finally there are the creams and caramels. I know, there isn't any caramel in a chocolate-covered cherry, but you can't go wrong with caramel.
The class is going to run from 9 AM until 6 PM, so it will be a long day. I may just need a bit of a treat to keep me going!
Have a great day!
